A bug on their canoe's gunwhale could have heard the following during Tuesday night's canoe lesson:
Mike: Why don't you take the stern?
Susan: I don't want to take the stern.
Mike: But you're doing so well! You should try the stern.
Susan: But I'm happy in the bow.
(Later.... with Susan paddling in the stern.)
Mike: What the heck are you doing? Can't you get us going in a straight line?
Susan: You said you wanted me in the stern.... (more bickering....)
Cue LOVE BOAT theme music....
